Relax guy, it’s only a book, right?
Put your dice to work with Next-Level Skill Checks for 5E, available now on the DMsGuild! Suitable for every campaign, this supplement grabs some overlooked rules in the DMG and builds them into an engine for new excitement. This is my first DMs Guild release and I’m really proud of what it offers! Thanks for taking a look!

New on DMsGuild: take your game to the next level with this guide to making skill checks amazing!

There are rules hidden in in the DMG that will make skill checks a hugely exciting part of your game. (No-one ever talks about them but they are right there on the page!) This guide takes those rules and turns them into a ready-to-use toolkit that will get you excited every time the d20 tumbles for a skill check.

Suitable for every 5E game. Check it out!

Recently I've been working on this. Hidden in the Dungeon Master's Guide for D&D 5E are a few rules that can turn your game into a PbtA-style festival of failing forward. In this release I take those rules and build them into a super-helpful toolkit, ready to use in your 5E game.

It's my first release for the DMs Guild marketplace. I'm curious to see how it goes!

Today is +Steve Hickey’s birthday and I want to spread the word about this project of his. Steve is a great designer and a clear thinker and he’s turning his skills to something really interesting: a linked series of games about workplace bullying.

I’m really excited by the things he’s doing here and I invite you to celebrate Steve’s birthday by sharing this project around, and if it’s something that you’re excited for too, maybe jumping on board as a supporter?

Love you Steve!

If you want an editor, consider Steve Hickey. He has improved everything of mine he’s ever looked at. He’s the real deal.
Do you need an insightful editor who’ll be a passionate fan of your work?
As a professional editor for the last 15 years, I’ve loved helping game designers, scriptwriters and authors bring out the best in their projects. To help you decide if I’ll be a good creative match for your RPG, script, novel or article, I’ll edit two pages of your project for free.

When editing RPGs, I aim to make it easy for readers to visualize how to play your game. I’ve found this approach encourages people to shift a game to the top of their ‘to play’ pile.

My editorial suggestions focus on questions like:
• How can we present your game as simply as possible?
• How can we highlight why your game is fun to play?

Specifically, I’ll suggest ways to clarify your game’s procedures and to improve how it supports GMs and players (especially with handouts, advice and checklists).

Monster of the Week and Soth demonstrate my approach. For another example, you can check out My Life as the GM: my free guide to running My Life with Master (see link, below).

If you’d like me to join your team or to take me up on the free ‘two-page test’, email me on stevehickey dot editor at gmail.

My standard rates are:
• US$0.03 per word for prose projects (games, novels, non-fiction articles)
• US$0.008 per word for proofreading and copyediting
• US$50 per hour for high-level analysis and for a script analysis and consultation. It typically takes me between 5-7 hours to prepare a script analysis.

If your budget is tight, I may be able to negotiate on rates for the right project.

I offer the following services:

A high-level analysis of your project. I’ll provide approximately three pages of feedback, focusing on how you could structure and communicate your project more effectively. For RPGs, this can include game design analysis. I work hard to understand your style and your project’s aims. If I see an alternative structure that’s compatible with these, I’ll describe it in detail—which may add to the page count (US$50 per hour).

A detailed editing pass. In addition to a high-level analysis, I’ll provide in-depth editing: suggesting ways to clarify your meaning and highlighting any inconsistencies. I think of this like a ‘reader’s commentary track’: you’ll receive my diplomatic but honest real-time reaction to reading through your project (US$0.03 per word).

Proofreading. In addition to a standard proofread, I’ll work backwards through your document, sentence by sentence. I’ll identify grammatical errors, as well as any sentences or sections you could combine (US$0.008 per word).

Feature film screenplay or synopsis analysis. I’m a New Zealand-based scriptwriter. I wrote and directed a theatrically released feature film called Hopeless (2000). Two years later, as the showrunner of the TV series Lovebites, I edited the scripts of 15 other writers. I’ll examine your story’s concept, your script’s structure, and your characters’ motivations and dialogue. I particularly enjoy identifying ways to enhance a script’s subtext. I’ll provide you with 4-10 pages of notes, a marked-up script with specific suggestions and general comments, and (at your option) a video call to discuss my notes (US$50 per hour).

I’m happy to discuss any of this. If you have questions, we can chat in the comments or you can contact me on stevehickey dot editor at gmail.
